“Sonnetta Residency best mid-range hotel in Kochi”
Reviewed 27 January 2011

I stayed at the Sonnetta Residency on the last night of my tour of India and found this hotel to be one of the best hotels I stayed in Southern India as regards cleanliness, service, facilities and true home comfort. The Sonetta is in a great location in centre of Fort Kochi where you can walk to all the local attractions. Very quiet and peaceful to sleep at night and the owner and staff were extremely helpful. The rooms are large and very comfortable with beautiful clean bathrooms and facilities include satellite TV, refrigerator and even bottled water provided free of charge.Highly recommended for indiviudal travellers to Kochi and Fort Kochi is a pleasure to stay in such a peaceful location as compared to the rest of India. I can't recommend Sonnetta highly enough for a very comfortable and affordable stay.

For the best value, cleanliness, position, friendliness/helpfulness.affordability this is the place in Fort Kochi. Owner Xavier and his competent staff made my stay so effortless - this is not always the case when traveling in India! All you need to do is ask. The room was spacious with ensuite, TV, Air con and fridge.
Being on Princess Street meant that I was just a walk away from the beach, Chinese Fishing Nets, shopping and great restaurants.
Thank you for being my home away from home.

Of all the places we stayed at, this hotel is by far the most pleasant and friendly place, and by far the best value for money. You may just stay there and surely you'll be satisfied but I recommend you to take advantage of the good people there and get to know the owner, Xavier, and his wonderful staff (Including his nephew Sanish). They are as kind, helpful and honest as they get. Truly great people that run a lovely lovely place in the best spot in Fort Cochin. I really couldn't compliment this place enough.

We enjoyed our stay at Sonnetta very much. The staffs were very delightful and friendly, making us feel at home!

Oh my God!!!! No words to describe how clean and tidy the rooms were! Each and every little thing for a customer has been taken care very well.

We enjoyed our food at the Elite Café which is very close to Sonnetta.

In the heart of Fort Kochi. The staff is welcoming and helpful. The rooms are simple but yet comfortable. Clean, quite place. The house is pretty as well and location is perfect. Price/quality is excellent. So far for a middle range hotel.. the best.

We paid Rs900 for a night in a double room with attached hot shower and toilet, with a tv and a small fridge. The room was nice, it was in a good location, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only thing that stopped us from staying longer was our budget (there are cheaper places to stay nearby). I would recommend this hotel to those looking for good value with a slightly bigger budget than ours!
